who hurt your family, but don't just sit there. >> i think i got more angry than michael dukakis appeared to. oh wow what a question. >> there's all kind of moments like this. we have some of them are hard to do on radio but we may go to some of them, the nonverbal cues often are what kills people in these debates. we got a call coming in from camille in north carolina. >> good morning, jamal and everyone else. i just want to say debates do matter. people who say oh, debates don't matter, i don't want to say they're unintelligent, but are uninformed. debates matter to me, because it's my mind and i know what i collect all year long and then when i hear you speak on point or off point that's when i think. people who say debates don't matter, i don't think they have a mind. >> camille, do you like it when you see the two candidates standing up there together, does that matter to you to see them side by side? >> yes! everything, it's a communication and we collect information evidence and put it in -- it's in our head. everything matters. >> very good, thank you camille. next, shirl

't stop laughing long enough to ask a question. he's at it again. >>it's michael moore here to see the chairman. >>and this time he's serious. >>we want our money back. >>no filmmaker is more "current" than michael moore. >>there's no in between no more. there's the people that got it all and the people that have nothing. >>welcome to the housing crash. >>boom! >>do not be afraid. federal prison is a nice place. ♪ >> announcer: radio meets television, the "bill press show." >> bill: all right. 25 minutes after the hour. jud with think progress coming up next. right now we're talking about a lot of reaction to the pew poll showing obama now trailing mitt romney by four points. romney bouncing up after last week's debate. leslie is calling from cleveland, ohio. good morning. >> caller: good morning. >> bill: what do you think? >> caller: i just wanted to say they don't believe the people in cleveland where i live they are very enthused to vote. they have either voted already, or are going to vote soon and they just thought romney's performance was just a bunch of lies.

-- like lebron james or michael jordan, he rises to the big moment. that didn't happen last night. >> bill: no. there is some particular -- the thing that struck me and angered me the most watching at home, i mean i felt -- i have to -- i felt that i have defended president obama better than he defended himself last night. there were several occasions where i said god, i could have answered that better than that. one particularly was this $716 billion. cut out of -- which governor romney accused again president obama of cutting from existing medicare benefits basically. and he said it three different times. every fact checker independently has debunked that claim. president obama never once last night told the truth. it was a lie. that's a big deal. if you're telling people who are seeing this for the first time, oh, my god obama cut $716 billion out of my medicare and obama never said no, that's not true. >> he wasn't sharp on any of his attacks on romney. he didn't -- you know, the thing -- the biggest part of t
